I'm not trying to kiss anybody's anything -- I'm aware that these folks are active members of this list. But I would like to point out that the "Struts in Action" book is a one of the better tech books that I've read. I found it a bit too much when I was first learning struts; I think this was becuase it covers so many things. Its not dense, it just covers a lot of ground. For instance, it explains why you would want to use the tag -- minor, but important. After getting a bit grounded in the framework, I'm now rereading the book and find it an exemplary and thorough coverage of the topic. I particularly appreciate the insistence on good coding and doing things according to "best practices." I highly recommend this book for anyone. Though I might recommend that a true newbie either a) read slowly or b) maybe start with something else -- but I'm not aware of a more rudimentary intro. In a world full of bad books, thanks for the effort. _______________________________________________ Join Excite! - http://www.excite.com The most personalized portal on the Web! --------------------------------------------------------------------- To unsubscribe, e-mail: user-unsubscribe@struts.apache.org For additional commands, e-mail: user-help@struts.apache.org
